Kausachun Fudcon, Long Live the Fudcon

Kausachun is a word that in Queshua language means Long Live!! and in this case we are attend to the last fudcon we have to say loudly “Kausachun Fudcon, Kausachun”

The higher number of attendees  in a FUDCon was in  Cusco, Peru, happening even  a transport strike in the city, it managed to gather more than 900 people in an auditorium, can you do a barcamp with that ? believe it or not,  was made, and was impressive and effective. People just proposed to collaborate and achieve a magnanimous event. Result: 65 lectures and workshops for a total of three days. I had started one of the best Fudcons of all time …
